Oh Dinah - I read what I said; I didn't mean to say CBT doesn't involve insights (is that how it came out?). I think it was that psychoanalytic therapy (or at least how I see or experience it) the therapist is less directive in pointing things out, challenging in ways that enable the patient to get the insight. Anyway, it is my experience that CBT therapist in the past have told me my behavior and underlying motivations rather than let me see/feel it first. So, I never got the insights.

With psychodynamic therapy, the insights come when the feeling is integrated with the thought. With my personal experience with CBT, it didn't happen that way--the Ts pointed things out rather than letting me experience that approach didn't work for me with several types of therapist, over several years. :)

Though many therapists are eclectic, I know. And i don't represent the field of CBT or any other type of therapy; just my opinions and experiences.

I have to go run an errand now and will probably come back later after I knock off some things from my to do list. I've been so much more productive lately. Take care!
